Bandai Namco Entertainment began streaming a four-minute promotional video on Thursday for Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation 2, the sequel to its Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation and Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation Next games. The video reveals that the "team battle action" game will launch in Japan on the PlayStation 4 on July 26.
The game is free to play, and pre-registration is available now. Those who pre-register will receive a PS4 theme and the ability to access the Gundam Ground Type mech suit early. Bandai Namco Entertainment is also selling two special packs for the game that retail at 3,000 yen (about US$27) each.
Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation was the first free-to-play game for the Gundam franchise. In the game, four to six players could join either the Earth Federation or Zeon Forces to play against each other. Players could not only pilot the giant Mobile Suits of the Gundam world, but could also attack enemies in vehicles or even on foot.
A sequel game titled Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation Next debuted for the PS4 and PS3 in August 2015. Featuring similar gameplay as its predecessor, the sequel introduces Mobile Suits from Mobile Suit Z Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed, and Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.
